So Musk's shiny rocket test flight ended with an explosion, and his explanation was, "Fuel header tank pressure was low during landing burn, causing touchdown velocity to be high & RUD". RUD apparently stands for rapid unscheduled disassembly.

Which is the most wanky way to describe a crash I've ever heard.

Seriously though, the man cares more about the productivity of his factories than the wellbeing of his workers. This is not the kind of person you want to entrust with your life to travel to a different planet.


@InvaderXan i think it's fair to distrust doing nothing forever more. which may not be just or right, but i can sympathize with the viewpoint, i can see some truth reflected in that broader disgust with the systems of power in modern humanity.
